Dear Valued Tourism Industry Partners,

It’s National Travel & Tourism Week. What better way to begin this special week for our industry than to finally be able to say America is on the move again! We recognize that being ready for visitors is top priority, and key to industry recovery. The CVB is excited to sponsor an event aimed at rebuilding our local hospitality workforce. In collaboration with the Virginia Beach hotel and restaurant associations, a virtual job fair will be held exclusively for Virginia Beach tourism industry businesses with vacancies to fill. The NTTW Virginia Beach Hospitality Job Fair will be a prime opportunity to reach a wide pool of candidates seeking employment. I hope you’ll all sign up and help make this a successful event. 

Here are the event details and the links for free registration:  
Date: Thursday, May 6 
Time: 1 – 6 p.m.   
Exhibitors/Virginia Beach businesses registration site: https://www.dineinvb.com/jobs/

Tuesday evening during the City Council formal session, it will be my honor to accept a Proclamation on behalf of our industry as Mayor Dyer proclaims May 2 -8, 2021 National Travel & Tourism Week. I hope you can tune in to watch this live virtual meeting which starts at 6 p.m.
